Paperback Launch: Maria Konnikova presents The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win
In conversation with Nate Silver

Bestselling author and New Yorker contributor Maria Konnikova joins Greenlight in a virtual launch event for the paperback edition of The Biggest Bluff! It’s true that Maria Konnikova had never actually played poker before and didn't even know the rules when, after a string of bad luck, she approached Erik Seidel, Poker Hall of Fame inductee and winner of tens of millions of dollars in earnings, and convinced him to be her mentor. But she certainly brought something to the table, including a PhD in psychology and an acclaimed and growing body of work on human behavior and how to hack it. Soon she was down the rabbit hole with Seidel into the wild, fiercely competitive, overwhelmingly masculine world of high-stakes Texas Hold’em. Join Konnikova down the rabbit hole at this virtual book talk with Nate Silver, founder and editor-in-chief of FiveThirtyEight and author of The Signal and the Noise.
